Farming, ranching and energy. More jobs and tax revenue for Linn County.  

Muddy Creek Energy Park is an agrivoltaics project combining solar panels with agriculture and sheep ranching on 1,100 acres in southern Linn County. It would generate enough energy for nearly 34,000 homes while keeping valuable agricultural land in production. 

Qcells is inviting the community to an open house from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, January 18, 2024, in room 125 of Life Northwest, 23650 Peoria Rd, Harrisburg, OR 97446, to learn more about Muddy Creek Energy Park. We’ll have information to share and experts covering all areas of agrivoltaics projects and Muddy Creek Energy Park. 

  • Agrivoltaics – A practice that combines solar energy with traditional agriculture and ranching to generate renewable energy and maintain working farmlands.  
  • The Environment – Agrivoltaics projects minimize environmental impact while generating renewable energy and supporting healthier soils that can be used for agriculture during and after the project’s lifespan.  
  • Permitting Timeline and Construction – Qcells has filed a notice of intent with the state, and we are working closely with stakeholders to submit our application in 2024.  
  • Project Benefits – Muddy Creek Energy Park would generate enough clean energy to power 34,000 homes while preserving valuable agricultural land. It will give farmers, ranchers and landowners flexibility, generate an estimated $1.6 million in annual tax revenue and support more than 100 union jobs during construction.   

The open house will also feature light refreshments as well as opportunities for questions and comments. We look forward to sharing more about Muddy Creek Energy Park with you on January 18.
